Capital innovation

Norway tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Oslo is Norway's confident and culturally rich capital. Its showpiece museums and galleries, combined with pretty parks and opportunities for island-hopping boat tours in the Oslofjord, make this one of Scandinavia's most exciting city destinations.

Oslo's museums & galleries

The Norwegian capital's museums and galleries are among the finest in Europe and their mixture of historical and contemporary collections seem to mirror Oslo's constant reinvention. The Viking Ship Museum, which houses three 9th-century Viking vessels, is a special highlight for history buffs, while Norway's nautical heritage is further revealed at the Kon Tiki Museum, dedicated to the expeditions of Thor Heyerdahl. And, continuing the theme of exploration, the Fram Museum houses Roald Amundsen's Antarctic expedition ship. There's also the chance to celebrate Oslo's favourite at the Munch Museum, whose headline act is, of course, the original version of The Scream. Finally, don't miss the Ibsen Museum, dedicated to Norway's most influential playwright, and the Opera House for performances by the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet.

World-class cuisine

Oslo's burgeoning culinary scene is also wonderfully diverse, taking in everything from such traditional favourites and peel-and-eat shrimp to Japanese, Italian and fusion cuisine. Be sure to take in the city's rightly acclaimed neighbourhood café scene and, if you feel like splashing out, go for dinner at the acclaimed Maaemo – the world's most northerly three-Michelin-starred restaurant. For sunny days and striking views, head to the popular Aker Brygger where a strip of superb eateries overlook the harbour.

Oslo's natural world

While Oslo might be known for its cultural and architectural innovation, its green spaces and nearby natural world are just as enticing. Indeed, the city earned the honour of European Green Capital for 2019, recognised for its superb public transport system, low carbon emissions, sustainable food production and numerous verdant parks. What's more, the idyllic islands and waterways of Oslofjord are just moments away, as are the ski fields and forests of Nordmarka – a winter playground.
